Licentiate and Doctorate Courses
 
In courses which are generally open for enrollment to STB and MA students as well as to STL, STD or PhD students, professors are to require additional and advanced scholarly work commensurate to the levels of study of the latter group of students. This may take the form of some substantial reading and theological writing normally expected of licentiate and doctorate students.
 
* Electives in the MA, STL, PhD, and DMin programs are those courses which do not belong to one’s chosen field of concentration.
